Fluidity Of Identity
Happy New Year!
I hope the holiday season brought the rest and relaxation you required. For me I would say the biggest gift I received was the blessing of revelation.
Since about 2009 when I was made redundant from a 9-5 that held nothing for me except the pay check I have been on a road of reinvention.
My goal has been to find a different way of existing in this world and contributing to it.
I knew that I would have to change many things and it began with examining the beliefs I had and looking at the results they garnered for me.
Needless to say almost everything has to change.
As with anything alteration in habit and belief this takes discipline and there have been many slip ups along the way but overtime I have learned to trust the new ways I have come to live in life.
Everything from my dietary choices to my long held views on the minutiae of life.
I understand more the power of the mind and the workings of life, although I by no means profess to be an expert I can take a distanced and objective stance.
Clearer to me also is reaction. Am I fully invested in a situation does changing my state benefit me or contribute to any substantial and positive outcome? The answer is usually, No.
Being drawn into a mass mood rarely creates a solution. Rather it promotes conversation about the extent of the problem therefore expanding the problem.
My revelation brought home loud and clear to me that all is well. I am on the right road for myself and if I look back I can see how everything popped into place at the right time, regardless of what it felt like when it happened.
I am shaping a new identity for myself and recent experiences have highlighted that not everybody wants me change but I refuse to stay the same.
Everybody has their story of redemption and I can see how I was saved by sending out a little prayer. My faith is strengthened and I am extra grateful for what I have received.
Happy New Year and You.
